My Friend's Yard, Part 1

I promised a tour through my friend's yard a few weeks ago, and finally (!) here is Part 1.

When you walk out her back patio slider, there is a covered patio with lots of plants in pots.  We'll save that for later.  Just beyond the patio, the yard opens up into a flower wonderland.  And there's even a great little vegetable garden.  Beyond the yard is a pool.

Today, we'll look at the flowers in the main part of the yard, going around the yard right to left.

Bougainvillea that behaves

Riot of colors
Roses, nasturtiums, geraniums
Pink ti tree in the corner, more roses and nasturtiums, the vine is a jessamine
The garden is tucked in the corner behind this fence.

Here are a few close ups of some of the flowers in these pictures:

Next time, we'll look at her veggie garden.


  1. Beautiful garden. My sister has a green thumb!


Play nice, please.
